senators harry reid and nancy pelosi have opposed that idea in the past. he says the president can get them to budge. >> yeah, the president essentially wants what he calls balance. either you increase revenue or you, you know, decrease the spending or you try to find some type of balance. when he gets into these democratic side, they don't want programs to be cut on the backs of, let's say, the recipients, middle class recipients. here's nancy pelosi and how she explains that. >> whatever adjustments would be made in social security should be there to strengthen social security, not to subsidize a tax cut for the wealthiest people in america and say that's how we balance the budget. the same thing with medicaid and medicare. again, we have said we support a grand bargain. >> grand bargain. so right now, i think you'd have to say the democrats feel that after the election, they have some type of mandate. the republicans obviously don't agree, but the democrats want to strike while the iron is hot. the president certainly wants to come to a deal as quickly as possible. time really is running

a question at nancy pelosi's presser and was soundly booed over his age-related queer. >> i some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and will be hurt -- hurts the party in the long term. what's your response? >> discrimination. >> whoa! >> next! next. >> leader pelosi -- >> i guess -- >> whoa! >> you always ask that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> oh, mitch mcconnell, the senate minority leader is 70 years old. nancy pelosi is 72. in the world of politics, age is kind of a skewed concept. average age of members of the house is 56. and of senators it's 62. i mean, paul ryan is thought of as a young gun. he's 42. that's eight years shy of being a card-carrying member of the aarp. ronald reagan was 69 when he first ran for president. many worried he was too old for the job until his famous quip during a debate. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> yes, reagan used age to his advantage. but seriously, h
president obama and the four top congressional leaders john boehner, nancy pelosi, harry reid, mitch mcconnell all will begin talks at the white house. cnn's jill dougherty is following those developments for us this morning. she's in our washington, d.c. bureau. good morning, jill. >> hello, soledad. well, this is it. both sides are going to be there. they're looking at the tone. they're looking at the president, what kind of tone will he set? you have to say that they're coming in both sides with their essential positions intact. all, both sides are saying that there is some room for a compromise. so, the essential thing is how do you compromise? if you look at the positions, let's say, of the republicans, and it's most strongly, as i say, relayed by senator mitch mcconnell, he does not, and they do not, want any tax increases. so let's listen to him first. >> and let's be clear, an opening bid of $1.6 trillion of new taxes just isn't serious. it's more than simpson-bowles or any other bipartisan commission has called for. it's been unanimously rejected in the house and senate, it's t
reid and senator minority leader mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi not surprising here. what's the expectation? >> well, you know, we'll see. publicly, suzanne, there has been a much more consillatory tone that we've seen since the election, whether it's from the president or the house speaker john boehner, but i can tell you in talking to sources privately on both sides of the aisle, they admit that it's all about positioning and posturing to make sure at the end of the day if we do go off the fiscal cliff that they're not blamed for it. they're the ones who looked reasonable, not unreasonable, and they're preparing for the other side to blame them for the opposite, if that makes sense. that's a lot of what you are saying in public. the reality is that neither side has a really clear machine date or clear vote and no one wants to look at the end of the day like they never gave compromise a chance. listen to republican bob corker, though, because there does seem to be a little bit of a crack on the republican side on whether or not it's okay to raise some taxes. >> i think th
